This beer pours a very pale straw yellow color, with a thick and fluffy white head. The head fades slowly, leaving a decent lace. Good for the style.

This beer smells of corn. Also, I get some boiled cabbage. It has all the characteristics I would expect for this style.

This beer tastes much like it smells. Mostly corn and boiled cabbage. It has a slightly sickeningly sweet flavor to it as well though.

This beer is pretty carbonated. It is a bit too carbonated for me. Actually, it is way too carbonated.

This beer would probably not make a good session beer for me, but maybe for some. It is a bit plain, and not good, but to some it would be good.

Overall: I didnt like the beer, but as far as the style goes, I dont like it. I think that for the style it is lacking, but not awfull. As far as a quality beer goes, this beer is no good at all.

Pours a clear straw from a 12 oz. clear bottle into a 16 oz. clear pint glass. Very little carbonation is present. A half inch head settles to a surface cap withing a minute or two.

Smells of lager yeast and some adjuncts, mostly uncooked corn and a bit of rice. Light and thin in the flavor department with a perky carbonated feel and finish. Surprising given the lack of bubbles in the beer, even with agitation. Just a bit chalky on the finish but otherwise offers average drinkability for the style. A less than average tropical beer, particularly as a light style.

Note: est. 4.4% ABV given caloric breakdown.

Pours an ugly pale straw color with a sickly slimy white head that immediately dies down. Aroma isn't skunky despite the clear bottle, but it's still really gross. Smells like rotting corn, DMS, and plastic. The flavor proves that the beer hasn't gone bad, it just smells awful. Taste is bland and inoffensive. Very generic sweet corn syrup water. Overcarbonation makes this hard to drink, although I probably wouldn't refuse one on a hot summer day. Microscopically thin body.

Part of the "8 Best beers around the world" pack from BevMo.

A: Poured a very light, pale straw yellow in color with a thin layer of head that actually stuck around for a bit and left lacing on the glass. Packaging screams "Wannabe Corona"

S: Interesting aroma. I expected and found the typical sweet malt and grain aroma that you find in these types of beer, but was surprised to find a creamy, vanilla aroma in there too. As it warms, there's also a little funky in there... like some rotting corn or something.

T: As expected, lots of corn, some sweet malts and a bit of carbonation and very slight metal. Not much to speak of, but at least it doesn't taste like it wants to be a Corona.

M: Carbonation is slightly high, but the watery body of the beer makes it stand out more. Definitely has that cheap beer feel on the tongue. Rather crisp and thin and leaves the mouth dry.

D: Overall, this is a very light beer without much flavor to speak of, and it's a bit watery and cheap feeling. About what I'd expected. Wouldn't seek this one out again. Luckily, since it was part of a package of other beers I only had to tolerate this once.
